    4. Audio Science

      Discussion of blind testing, psychoacoustics, and measurement techniques. Also, preliminary, research, and exploratory measurements should generally be posted here unless the results of your measurement rigs have been established and well known. This is to prevent confusion and difficulty in comparing one measurement with another. Excessive insistence on only very difficult to implement double blind testing results in an automatic one week ban or worse.

  3. Measurements (plus subjective impressions)

    Measurements with subjective impressions. Hands, Marv, Ultrabike, AtomicBob, Sorrodje, and cskippy. Unless your measurements have been sanctioned, please post them in the "Gear Measurements (unsanctioned) sub-forum. To is to prevent confusion as different measurement setups will have different results. Note that Hands' coupler has pinna, which will bump up the 2-3.5kHz region a little bit.

    5. For Sale

      HF is probably a better place to reach people for selling most stuff. We reach the same kinds of people as HF, but HF gets 7,000,000 sessions and 35,000,000 pageviews per month. We are about 1000 times smaller and the members here are much more selective in what they purchase.
